Recently got some from EAS. They work well, look great, and were an easy install. EAS claims no errors, but I've coded out bulb errors so I can't confirm that.

I disagree. Tint and vinyl (not to mention Plasti Dip) are usually the poor man's alternative to the real thing.

I tinted mine, they look great. The guy that was vinyl wrapping my roof and window trim was talking to me about it and did it for free when I told him I was about to spend money on smoked ones. I am extremely happy with them.

I swapped my bulbs out for the white LED's sold on **********s. Had to code them to not flicker on startup but no codes or anything and they look pro.

The OP needed a replacement. His no longer worked.

I don't know much about their shipping cost to Canada, wasn't much to a APO address. This is one of the reasons I love America we have freedom of choice to buy or not to buy!
